EAST POINT, Ga. (AP) — Police in the Atlanta area have identified four people seen fighting in a video of a Mother's Day brawl that went viral.

East Point police Capt. Cliff Chandler tells local news outlets that 26-year-old Devecc Bilingslea, 25-year-old Zacarli Dalcoe, 26-year-old Willis Jumario Hall and 21-year-old Demonte Harrison were cited for disorderly conduct in connection with the May 8 fight at Kiku Japanese Steakhouse.

A police report says Harrison, a busboy, was cleaning tables when a female customer berated him for smiling. Harrison replied that it was his job to smile, and a male customer got up and punched Harrison. The fight escalated from there.

Attorney Charles Webb is representing Hall, Billingslea and Dalcoe. He says the video of the fight doesn't tell the whole story, and that he believes his clients will be exonerated.

It's unclear if Harrison has an attorney.
